//What is the difference between a bushing and a bearing?

A bushing is a round shaped cylindrical component. It is either equipped with rolling elements (ball, roller) or not and mainly used as a support component in an assembly to reduce machine wear out and for smooth operation. Its primary use is static (support) or dynamic (motion). On the other hand, a bearing is a machine element used for moving parts specifically for dynamic (motion) such as radial bearings and linear bearings.
